92 quadrillion problem
Searching this board I've seen that this problem has come up a couple of times, but I haven't seen anyone say that they got an answer that helped.
An Ameritrade account is showing a balance of -92,233,720,368,541,467.32 in any type of report that shows account balances. Another poster had a number that was the same, except for the last 6 digits and cents, i.e., -92,233,720,368,... was the same, but my ...541,467.32 was different for that person.
When viewing the account itself, it has a zero balance as it should (closed in 2012). Checking with the Holdings button also produces zero currently, and expected values in the period when the amount first appears in the reports.
I've narrowed down the date when the balance changes: 8-20-2003. There are transactions on that date, but none that reflect this type of error. I checked price history for securities in the account around that time; everything looks consistent.
I've tried validating and re-calculating so far. Worst case, I have back-ups that don't exhibit this problem. Thinking of deleting the account from the current file, exporting the transactions from the backup, and importing into the current file.
If anyone has any suggestions, would appreciate.
